YoungStatS is set up to promote research in statistics in its broadest sense, encompassing all of its areas and applications, among other mathematical statistics and probability, official statistics, biostatistics, and medical statistics, economic statistics, and econometrics, social statistics, environmental statistics, statistics in natural sciences, data science and survey methods.
The intended audiences are in particular young researchers and scholars in statistics, but also the research community in statistics in general, practitioners in the field, advisory councils, institutions, academia, the private sector as well as journalists.
Young Statisticians Europe (YSE) is an initiative of a group of young professionals in statistics, econometrics, and data analysis, launched during a workshop in France in October 2018 by 20 representatives from 8 European countries (Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, France, Greece, Romania, and Spain). It aims to develop a network of young statisticians at the European level to facilitate ideas and best practice exchange as well as better collaboration, both in research and teaching. The initiative has since received the support of FENStatS. To this day, YSE has been joined by other European groups from Ireland, Italy, and Slovenia.
We hope to welcome you to the event and look forward to celebrating World Statistics Day 2020 on October 20th!
